Subject: FTRF Judith Krug Fund Banned Books Week Grants

Deadline: May 12, 2017

Each year the Freedom to Read Foundation (FTRF) distributes grants to non-profit organizations including libraries, schools, and universities to support activities which raise awareness of intellectual freedom and censorship issues during the annual Banned Books Week celebration (September 24-30, 2017). Grants are awarded at two levels, $1,000 and $2,500. To be eligible for a grant, organizations must not have been a recipient of an FTRF grant within the past five years.

Grantees also receive an ALA 2017 Banned Books Week PromoKit valued at $84 which includes one poster, one roll of stickers, one 50-pack of the “2017 Field Report: Banned and Challenged Books,” one 100-pack of bookmarks, and one tote bag.

Grantees are encouraged to share their events on social media and local press. A follow-up report detailing expenditures, numbers of participants, links to press coverage, and a narrative of the event is due within six weeks of the Banned Books Week celebration.
